Kolkata Knight Riders still have a slim chance of qualification for the 2013 IPL but they must beat struggling franchise Pune Warriors India to keep that hope alive.
A disappointing campaign for defending champions KKR has had a slight resurgence of late with back-to-back wins for the 2012 winners.
Yet it is looking like too little too late for Kolkata, as even if they are victorious in their two remaining fixtures they will still have to rely on Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad losing their last games.
Pune have once again been the whipping boys in the IPL table as despite looking to improve on their bottom placed finish last year, they have lost 12 matches out of 14 in this sixth edition of the tournament.
The side have experimented with Angelo Mathews and Steve Smith as captain, but since an injury to Smith has forced him to return to Australia, his fellow countryman Aaron Finch has taken over on what seems a permanent basis.
For the Warriors, saving face is all that matters to them now as they were the first franchise to be mathematically eliminated from making the last four – but they can avoid finishing last again if they can better Delhi Daredevils’ results in the last two games.
Anything other than a Knight Riders win on their home ground would be a surprise in this clash.
